With the closure of Baseland - our Shane Cotton show - on Sunday, our staff are currently working against the clock to prepare the space for our next exhibition. Rebels, Knight and Other Tomorrows is the latest project for Christchurchurch-based collaboration Edwards + Johann. Featuring striking large-scale photographs of black-clad warrior knights and brightly back-dropped rock-scapes, accompanied by a series of enigmatic Probe sculptures, the exhibition will open to the public this Saturday (with an artists floortalk at 11am). Until then, your first glimpses may be of this striking figure, currently gracing the hoarding outside the (currently closed) Christchurch Art Gallery.
